Linen was worn before the earliest historical records, for it has been identified in the wrapings of the oldest mummies in the pyramids, ! priests and kings who lived thousands ! of years before Christ. Ireland is the chief linen manufacturing country, though Germany makes a great deal of a much coarser sort; Scotland, France and Belgium finer varieties. Little squares woven specially for nap kins or serviettes are made a specialty by the linen weavers of Japan, the Philippines and Tenericliffe.

The risk of hail damage may be greatly reduced by securing hail insurance from the State Board Of Hail Insurance which has distrib uted over $ 1 , 100,000 to farmers during the last eiffht years. This is a much greater amount than paid out by any other agency. State hail insurance payments hre not subject to garnishment or attachment, but may be assigned. Application for hail insurance on grain must be made to the assessor of the county in which the grain is growing. Full information will be furnished by any assessor or by the STATE BOARD OF HAIL INSURANCE. Helena, Montana. A HAIL INSURANCE POLICY Will Not Break You— A HAIL LOSS MAY è&fThe %>ad 9b iWVW, ..

Insomnia ** - Many apparently healthy people are troubled with insomnia. It is not al ways easy to locate the cause in any individual case. Even though one re gards himself as perfectly healthy, careful examination may reveal the beginning of disease. The abnormal wakefulness may be a symptom of faulty functioning of one or more or the treatment of the insomnia is the treat ment of the abnormal condition on If no disease is present, the habits should be carefully investigated. Some ( people are wakeful because they in- j dulge in tea or coffee, or use too much | tobacco near bedtime. These some gans. When this is the case, which it is based. times result in a nervous stimulation that makes sleep impossible. Much mental effort during the evening may | also make the mind too active for sleep. Late Meal a Cause The cause sometimes consists in eat ing too heartily a short time before j going to bed. This is especially likely to be true if there is any tendency to digestive disturbances. On the other hand, some people have difficulty in sleeping if they are hungry. In such eases, a glass of milk and a cacker , 1 cases, a glass of milk and a cracker, A bedroom that is too hot, or poorly ventilated, may cause restlessness. So may a bed that is too soft, too well covered, or otherwise uncomfortable. Efforts to overcome insomnia by means of drugs are usually unsatis factory and dangerous. Many sleep 1 producing drugs are habit-forming. They should be avoided except when prescribed by a physician. A warm bath, a hot foot bath, and sponging the head with cool water before going to bed are safer remedies. And the I . sleep produced by these simple meas ures is natural and refreshing. But the cause of the insomnia should be sought in the habits or in the pres- j ence of some beginning disease. Re-, moving the cause is the best way to a cure. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Eyelashes Turn in Mrs. W. D. writes: "My lower eye lid seems to be turned in so that the I ■ eyelashes grow into the eye. The eye is always sore because the eyelashes keep scratching it. Somteimes I can pull some of the lashes out but they grow back again. Is there anything I can do to stop them from growing like this?" Reply—This can be corrected by an operation on the eyelid. If you object to this little operation, you can have the lashes pulled out when they bother you. Or, you can draw down the eyelid with a piece of adhesive tape so that the lid margin will be turned out and the lashes kept from scratching the eye. Operation is the best.

I have been trying to get r i d 0 f them ever since by catching and killing them, and washing my clothes ; n boiling water. I am an Englishman and never knew what lice were until I came here. Would you please tell me w h a t to do to get rid of them ?" Reply—The clothing should be boiled, baked or gone over with a hot iron. Lice live in the seams of cloth ing, Treat the bed colthing the same way a8 wea ring apparel. The body should be thoroughly scrubbed with soap and hot water. As a preventa five, clothing should be dusted once a week with washed sulphur. Be sure that the sulphur is distributed along the seams, Sprinkle sulphur in the bed cloth •< ing. Rooms which may harbor lice should be thoroughly cleaned by washing the walls with a 694- solution of carbolic ac i d . Kerosene will kill lice in the hair, Leave it on all night. But keep away f rom opan fl ame s! Vingear will dis solve the nits. . To Purify W'ater R. G. S. asks: "Will you tell me what it is that can be put into water to purify it? Someone has told me that there is something that one can carry on trips that you can use in water when you don't know whether it is pure or not." Reply—Halazone tablets are used for this purpose. They liberate chlorin in the water. Your druggist can sup ply them. Heart Beats Too Fast A. B. P. writes: "I am 20 years old and seem to be in fairly good health. too fast. It beats But my heart beats 90 times a minute and it beats that t fast even when I am not exercising. What would cause it to beat so fast?" Reply—Some people normally have a more rapid heart action than others. Any weakness in the heart muscles may cause the heart to beat fast. It makes up in the number of beats the power that it lacks in each beat. The weakness of the muscle may be caused b Y infection or valvular disease, Over-activity of the thyroid often causes a rapid heart. Fever, such as that occurring in tuberculosis and the toxins of some diseases, may increase the number of beats. Tobacco or coffee may be the cause.

Scholes, in care of this paper.] -M fare and one-third will be charged per sons going to Helena from any dis tance up to 160 miles and that a one way fare for the round trip will be charged for any one going a distance of more than 160 miles. This reduction in rates makes it possible for people from the eastern part of the state to come to Helena, at an extremely reasonable «oat. The slogan "A Fair Just like it Uaed to Be" is arousing the interest of people all over Montana in the State Exhib ition of 1925.
